The field at this week's RBC Heritage is akin to the field at last week's Charles Schwab Challenge, and that's a good thing for golf fans who were treated to a stacked leaderboard last weekend at Colonial Country Club. It also means that golf will be starting particularly early over the first two rounds of action this week in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

 

Featured groups are always going to dominate the conversation, and this week's is nearly as good and more stylistically-diverse than they were a week ago. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, and last year's winner C.T. Pan make up one grouping, while Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, and Gary Woodland -- all very different swingers of the club -- make up another. Those aren't the only two great groups, either. Justin Rose, Justin Thomas, and Jon Rahm are together, while Jordan Spieth draws Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson early on Thursday morning.

 

Add it all up, and we're in for another week of terrific golf at a small but fun (and nuanced) course in Hilton Head.
